Crown Prep Weekly: Season 6 Recap


Saturday night’s Crown Prep Sprint Series went off with a bang, as the weekend’s 12-race showcase featured some exhilarating down-to-the-wire finishes that certainly lived up to the Photo Finish™ LIVE name. 

As we will each week in this space, we’ve got you covered from start to finish on the Crown Prep week that was.

Let’s take a look back at which stables spent the weekend riding high on a win, and will spend this week naming Week 7 Crown Prep races.

Filly Tears Sprint Cup (R1) 

5 Furlongs | Right | Dirt

Win: Lucky Lucy | Golden Stables

Place: Zdu | SOLmate Stables

Show: DelPT Half Star | Solanaut Stables

Sometimes, the furlongs are your best friend. With Zdu and DelPT Half Star closing in down the stretch of this week’s Crown Prep Filly Tears Sprint, Lucky Lucy from Golden Stables had to be thanking the horse racing heavens above that this race was just five furlongs in distance. If for one more, Lucy may have not been so lucky.

Sheeesh. What a short-distance sprint to start the weekend series off with a bang.

Chief Little Turtle Memorial (R2) 

5 Furlongs | Right | Turf

Win: Meadows | Solanaut Stables

Place: Hickory Hills | BigBrain Stables

Show: Baja | Miami Nation

In the Chief Little Turtle Memorial, we had a race won by a distance you couldn’t fit a baby turtle into if you tried, featuring Meadows besting Hickory Hills by literal inches for the win.

It was anyone’s race with 100m left, as the entire pack of horses seemed in prime position for a late kick. At one point it seemed as if Baja and Miami Nation would capitalize on a nice turn, but the horse then faded, leaving way for an incredible finish by the top 2.

If that’s how the Crown Prep started this week, we can’t wait to recap how it all ended.
